Taking Back Sunday Reschedule Tour
aaamusic | On 30, Jul 2011
Taking Back Sunday have been forced to reschedule the majority of their UK tour that was due to commence next week due to unavoidable scheduling conflict which has severely limited the time that they can spend on these shores.
The band’s show at London’s Roundhouse is still set for May 20th as originally planned, while the Nottingham Rock City show moves from May 14th to May 19th. All other shows will be rescheduled for August and early September, listed in full below. Tickets for the delayed shows will remain valid for the new dates. All tickets for the Liverpool show are now valid for the new Manchester date, or refunds at point of purchase.
Front man Adam Lazzara says “We are terribly sorry to have to reschedule some of these dates as we are always so thankful for the support over in the UK. We promise to give you the best shows we have in us when we are there.”
Taking Back Sunday’s shows on the main stage at the Leeds and Reading festivals (August 26th and 28th) are unaffected:
23rd – Glasgow ABC
24th – Manchester Academy
26th – Leeds Festival
28th – Reading Festival
29th – Bath Pavilion
30th – Norwich UEA
1st – Birmingham Institute
2nd – Southampton Guildhall
The band’s upcoming self-titled fifth album will be released on June 27th on Warner Bros. Records. The album was produced by Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, Lostprophets) who also helmed Taking Back Sunday’s ‘Louder Now’ album which topped Kerrang!’s 2006 Album of the Year poll. Writing for the album commenced at the Sonic Ranch, a studio based in a pecan ranch in El Paso, Texas shortly after the five members reunited last year and continued at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle, while the recording took place at Barefoot Recording in Hollywood.
The band offered a first teaser of the album when they unveiled a demo version of ‘Best Places To Be A Mom’ on their official website. The song was premiered on the band’s brief June 2010 US tour that they embarked upon shortly after announcing that Nolan and Cooper had returned to the fold. They subsequently followed it with ‘El Paso’, a raw blast of garage-rock vitriol and loud/quiet/loud dynamics and the first completed track to emerge from the recording sessions.
